Since its inception in 2007, DukeEngage has sought input from faculty, students and staff, as well as community partners and national thought leaders. Their wisdom and insights help our leadership set the goals that frame our strategic plans.
In 2017, as DukeEngage celebrated 10 years of successful programming, we embarked on an ambitious new strategic plan designed to guide our work for the next five years.
During the program’s first 10 years, more than 4,000 Duke undergraduates served 1.25 million volunteer hours with more than 600 community partners in 37 U.S. cities and 79 countries around the world. The goals laid out in the inaugural DukeEngage strategic plan, DukeEngage 2017: A Blueprint for Broader and Deeper Engagement (see below), guided the program’s work and global engagement with students, faculty, and partners.
The diverse voices of our stakeholders informed the aspirational goals of our new strategic plan, DukeEngage 2022: Building on Impact. Good resource stewardship and an abiding commitment to inclusivity are underlying principles that always guide us. The goals of this new plan enhance DukeEngage’s already effective practices and develop new dimensions that strengthen its mission, values, learning, and stewardship.
